Rare Sterling Silver Africanist Plaque
Unusual and very rare Sterling silver plaque depicting a naked African tribal woman heavily adorned with jewellery.
This is an eye-catching figure, modelled in strong relief against a flat hammered background contained within a square border which runs along both sides and the top.
With a definite Anna Quinquaud influence, and typical of the ‘Croisière Noire’ era, it dates from circa 1925-30.
The plaque, which measures a little under 6.5 cm high and 4.5 wide, is mounted in a polished wooden frame of figured Sycamore. The frame measures approximately 11 X 9.5 cm.
